Uzbekistan is our strategic partner in the Central Asian region

Mr Mirziyoyev said in Uzbekistan Hungarian businesspeople and companies are welcome and are given every assistance to make their investments successful.

Mr Orbán highlighted that in the present war and sanctions crisis, the whole of Europe, with Hungary in it is struggling in order to not lose its economic impetus. In this situation, however, rather than slowing down the intensity of cooperation with Uzbekistan, our strategic partner in the region, we are seeking to increase it, he pointed out. We are strengthening the common projects launched in the areas of nuclear energy, the chemical industry, the financial sector and telecommunications, Mr Orbán added.

Mr Orbán also announced that the number of Hungarian scholarship grants provided for Uzbek students in Hungary would be raised from 120 to 170 annually, Mr Havasi said, reporting on the proceedings of the talks.
